The PRLTC Summer Fiesta organised by Stephen Biggs and Sarah James was a massive success. We sold 92 tickets (82 attended on the night), took just over £900 on the bar and were given a £100 donation. We were also given a refund of £100 by the caterers, and the cost of the band (£600) was sponsored by Stephen’s company, McCormick Foods Ltd, via a direct donation to the Rennie Grove Hospice charity to whom the band donated all of their fees. A massive thank you is due to everyone who helped Stephen and Sarah in making the event a success. […]
